FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most commonly used methods for transferring website files between a computer system and a server. With FTP software like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will deal with all the rest. There’re several pluses of employing FTP, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload in case there’s some problem with the connection or the ability to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the best option when you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to make use of third-party software.
FTP Accounts in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting
plans will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just several clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to indicate what website files and folders each one can access. There is no upper limit on the maximum number of accounts that you are allowed to create, so you can have as many as you need at any given moment. In case you do not want to use a specific FTP account anymore or if a web designer has completed their task and you do not want them to access your web content any longer, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will allow you to see all currently active FTP accounts displayed in alphabetical order, together with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You’ll be able to modify the access path and the password, to download an auto-configuration file, etcetera. We also have a detailed Help database, which can help you administer your FTP accounts in case you encounter any difficulties.
FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
are truly powerful, which makes them suitable for hosting an enormous number of sites. Speaking of which, we have chosen not to set a restriction on the number of FTP accounts that you can create, so you can have a separate FTP account for each site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers. All FTP accounts will be shown alphabetically in the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each semi-dedicated server account. For each of them, you’ll be able to check the access path and to edit it, if needed. Also, you can set up an account in an FTP client by downloading an auto-config file and installing it on your computer system, which will save you time. If you have never had a hosting account before, you can check our in-depth educational video clips, which can be accessed through the same section of the Control Panel.
FTP Accounts in VPS
The virtual private server
plans offered by our company will enable you to set up unlimited FTP accounts to manage the content of your websites. This is valid irrespective of which Virtual Private Server plan you buy and which Control Panel you pick upon registration – DirectAdmin, cPanel or Hepsia. In any case, you’ll receive FTP access to the virtual server without having to install any software, since an FTP server is part of the standard software suite which comes with the VPS plans by default. You can set up one FTP account for every domain or subdomain that you have or even separate accounts for a single folder – in case you want a number of users to access the web content in it with their own personal login credentials. With any of the offered Control Panels, setting up, deleting or editing an FTP account takes no more than a few clicks through a simple-to-work-with graphical interface.
